Many of you will already be aware that from 1 April this year, it is a legal requirement for all snares to have a serial number identifying their owner. In order to get a serial number you need to have the new snaring certificate. This is a one day training course with an assessment at the end.
I can organise this in Kilchoan via the Gamekeepers Association. If it is arranged through the college it will cost £60, and I will make sure that it is eligible for ILA, so if your income is less than £22,000, your fee will be paid by ILA, provided your application is approved.
The Gamekeepers Association will only come here if I have 20 people signed up to do the course, so please let me know as soon as possible if you want a place. As soon as I know I have enough people I will organise a date for the course.
Please pass this information on to anybody else who you think might be interested in doing a snaring course in Kilchoan.
